In Spa.
This is a general analysis of population trends in contemporary Spain in the context of demographic trends in the European Community as a whole. The first chapter examines current demographic trends in the Community and in Spain, focusing on the factors leading to low fertility. Other chapters look at regional variations within the Community; changes in urban and rural population dynamics; changes in fertility, mortality, and migration; natural increase and migration; and the "two Spains," defined as the metropolitan and nonmetropolitan populations.

Focusing on the relations among Israel's ethnic diversity, its economy, and demographic change, this study examines how modern Israeli society has evolved. The author shows how changes in immigration policy over time by the Palestinian and Israeli governments have resulted in the current mix of Jewish and Arab populations. Two important aspects of modern Israel are identified. "The first concerns important changes in marriage, family and intermarriage, educational attainment and occupational achievement, ethnic politics, religion, and the changing role of women. A second...pertains to the social and economic contexts of community life. Here [the author] investigates rapid change among Israel's major urban centers, towns, and agricultural centers, including the Kibbutz as well as Arab communities. In concluding chapters, the author discusses the role of government in shaping population policy, including health, fertility, and contraceptive and abortion issues. He also describes the influence of Jewish communities outside of Israel and the impact of the Middle East conflict with Arab states on Israel's domestic policy as well as the conflict with populations in territories administered by Israel since 1967."

This report is the last one in a series of studies carried out under the auspices of the Panel on the Population Dynamics of Sub-Saharan Africa of the National Research Council's Committee on Population. One of two in-depth studies of countries, this report analyzes the population dynamics of Senegal. There are chapters on the geographic and socioeconomic setting of the country, population growth and distribution, fertility, and mortality. The report concludes that Senegal's small fertility decline is linked to changes in marriage patterns rather than to any increase in the use of modern contraception.

In Scc. with sum. in Eng.
Using data from the 1991 census, this report analyzes recent population trends in Yugoslavia, consisting of the republics of Serbia and Montenegro. The authors note a general trend toward a decline in the rate of population growth, which will lead to population decrease in the early decades of the next century. An analysis by region shows some significant differences, ranging from current depopulation in Vojvodina to high rates of growth in Kosovo and Metohija, and almost zero population growth in Central Serbia. Montenegro still has a growing population, but the rate of growth is declining rapidly. The authors suggest that the current differences in demographic behavior among the various ethnic groups in the population are likely to continue. This in turn will lead to significant changes in the ethnic composition of the population. The need to develop appropriate population policies designed to minimize the impact of these changes is stressed.

"[Unlike] the majority of developing countries, China went through a steady population growth for several centuries, the country finally entering the phase of demographic transition less than fifty years ago. The author...attempts to show that the most obvious result of such an evolution has been the gradual filling up of the Chinese agricultural space by a dense peasant population, especially vulnerable to Malthusian crises. Population growth was much higher in peripheral regions, whereas the transition towards an urbanized industrial society [has] just started."

The report focuses on regional and state patterns of population growth between 1990 and 1995, particularly as they affect residential and labor force patterns. It also looks at the aging of the population; racial and ethnic diversity; immigration; changing family patterns; and the distribution of income and poverty. An appendix table provides state-by-state comparisons of 15 important demographic and economic indicators."

"On the basis of census data we analyse population growth since 1901 first for India as a whole, secondly [at the] State level. The spatio-temporal patterns suggest a process of innovation and diffusion with regard to the spatial change of natural increase. The southern States cover more stages of the model of demographic transition than the northern States. Explanations about these spatial differentials come for example [from] sociocultural differences between north and south determining two demographic regions according to Satpura Range."

"Northern Ireland has demographic and socio-economic structures which set it apart from the rest of the United Kingdom and religion impacts on this social demography more than in any other `developed' society. Peripherality also serves to underpin some of the distinctiveness of the Province. Socio-economic and demographic data from Population Censuses and demographic data from Annual Reports of the Registrar General are analysed. The socio-demographic trends between 1971, 1981 and 1991 are traced and the spatial patterns are described. Many of the spatial patterns have been remarkably persistent over time and the problems that arise from this are unlikely to be addressed fully given the Province's perverse polity."

"Since the Russian economy recently has shown signs of stabilization, there now is evidence that demographic trends are beginning to improve somewhat. Although the population declined by 164,200, to 148.1 million at the beginning of 1996, the release of new statistical compendia by the Russian statistical agency (Goskomstat Rosii) in 1995 and early 1996 makes it possible to identify several positive trends....Life expectancy increased for the first time since 1985. The infant mortality rate declined for the second year in a row. The crude death rate declined for the first time in a decade. The birth rate remained at about the same level for the third consecutive year. The rate of natural increase (births minus deaths), although still negative, recorded a moderate increase."

"The population of the United States continues to increase, albeit at a slower pace than in the past. Geographically, the states of the South and West still are experiencing larger relative gains than those in the Northeast and Midwest, although some changes in the decennial growth pattern have recently emerged. California's population increments have steadily diminished since 1990, and last year Florida's relative gain was comparatively small. Moreover, New York recorded a decline in the number of its residents. In contrast, the count of persons living in Texas appears to be accelerating. Together, the population of these four states comprises nearly one-third of the nation's total and, therefore, the United States' future will be heavily influenced by the changes in their growth patterns."

The author traces demographic trends in Japan using data from a variety of sources. "The demographic transition took place quite early, [was] almost achieved during the 1920s, and the post-war baby boom did not challenge it. Although a stabilization was engaged during the 1970s, a rural depopulation started again during the 1980s towards the Megalopolis and especially [Greater] Tokyo. Today the ageing of the Japanese population is not [strictly a] demographic problem but a social and geographical one."
